Roger Federer may have failed to notch up a major triumph in 2015, but a tally of six titles and a 63-11 record imply that it wasn’t an unsuccessful year for the 14-time Grand Slam champion, who himself cannot agree more to it.

The 34-year-old Federer, who was in India for the ongoing International Premier Tennis League (IPTL), spoke to TOI, reflecting on his recently-concluded season and the biggest challenges that speed-bumped him during the year.

“I didn’t win a major in 2015 – but I feel like I had a very strong year. I won six titles and played in a lot of finals. I am encouraged and excited about where my game is today – and my chances in 2016,” Federer framed up an honest assessment.

Talking about his biggest challenges, he touted top-ranked Novak Djokovic as his toughest opponent of the year. “Novak was a challenge for me this year. He played great. Even though I have beaten him three times, he got the better of me in three big finals. We’ve had some great matches.”

“He’s playing at a very high level right now – I look forward to playing him many times in 2016,” he added.
